The Great Aussie Beer Shed, Echuca

Must see · Specialty Museum · Museum
A small town's big tourist attraction, The Great Aussie Beer Shed is the first and only beer can museum in Australia. In addition to its collection of 16,000 beer cans, the museum features displays of other brewery-related items, such as beer tap tops, tap handles, trays, old wooden beer barrels, bottles, vintage signs, and old and new brewery equipment and machinery. The museum covers over 400 sq m (5,000 sq ft) and conducts daily guided tours of its many displays. Much more than just a beer can gallery, the site offers an unusual look at Australian history, with its permanent exhibit of old-fashioned farm equipment and kitchen and laundry items of early European settlers.

  • Fantastic from start to finish. Even as kiwis Neil interested us with Aussie history and made us laugh. Neil's collections are amazing and well organized. He is a top host. Well worth seeing. We will recommend to all our kiwi mates. Thanks Neil !!
  • Absolutely brilliant. We were there for 2 and a half hours and would have been able to spend the whole day there. Neil is a wonderful host/your guide with a genuine love of anything Australian and anything to do with beer, and a great character. So much to see. Loved it.
  • Excellent place to go and see. Neil was great with what he has done over 43 years and he also gives a lot back to charities..well done mateπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  • Neil is quickfire and knowledgeable about his collection. Rattled off a great deal fo facts in a short period of time. Really warms your heart to see the pride he has in his shed. Good beers afterwards and he's always keen to chat and find out where you're from.
  • Simply Amazing! So much to see and a great host with Neil giving us a tour and background into his treasure chest of memorabilia
